Our Plan for Reopening
Let’s worship in the park!
Sunday, July 26, we’ll be worshiping together OUTSIDE at the 9 am service. We’ll also be live online at 9 am, and we’ll replay that service online at 10:45.
You’ll need to reserve your space for the outside service here.
You’ll also need to bring your own chairs or blankets to sit on. There is limited shade in the park, but feel free to bring a tent, which you can set up in the back.
The Pavilion parking lot will be closed. Here’s a map to the recommended parking area.
We want to make sure everyone has accurate information about current operations, so please help us by pointing people toward this page if they have questions.Watch Matt’s update videos
Frequently Asked Questions
Masks are encouraged but not required at outdoor services. You still must maintain 6 feet of distance between family groups
When we have services inside the Worship Center you will need to wear a face covering. To ensure everyone’s safety, our options were to require face coverings or not sing. We want to be able to continue worshiping our Lord with song, so we’ll all be wearing face coverings inside the worship venues.
If you are medically unable to wear a tight-fitting mask, please consider an alternative, looser-fitting face covering.
If you visit the office during the week for an appointment, you’ll need to wear a face covering in the offices and hallways.
When we meet outside, we’ll have hosts helping family groups arrange seating at appropriate distances from each other.
We’ll have designated seating areas in the Worship Center, with hosts to seat each family group or individual to maintain at least a 6 ft distance.
The services are touchless, so we won’t be handing out programs, or handshakes, or offering plates. On Sundays when we take communion, we’ll provide the elements ahead of time in self-contained packages.
We have increased our already thorough cleaning schedule, and a team will sanitize both venues before each service.
Everyone will be directed on how to self-check for symptoms before coming to church, and when you check in, we’ll make sure everyone has done so. If you’re sick, please stay home.
Officials have identified these higher risk categories:
- Older adults (65+)
- Individuals with compromised immune systems
- Individuals who have serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease
- A care-taker of or has a high-risk category person living with them
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please worship from home until you are symptom-free. If you are scheduled to volunteer, please let your team leader know.
Recent loss of taste or smell
Or if someone you live with has been diagnosed with COVID-19
At this time no other groups will be meeting on campus either on Sundays or during the week.
When we’re able, we’ll begin opening some of those groups in phases. Your group leaders will be communicating directly with you when the time comes. You can continue to watch this space for updates as well.
Here at CrossPoint, we’ve talked a lot about concern vs conviction. This season has been fertile ground for reacting out of concern over things that aren’t actually happening but could happen. From bias, people then make absolute statements about situations and people that aren’t legitimate. We believe that we have not been, nor do we plan to begin, making decisions from concern. Here are the foundational convictions that we are standing on as we move forward.
Convictions we are making decisions by:
- 1. God loves His Church and His will is for her to be His influence in this world.
- 2. God knows the outcomes of every action and will lead His church down the path that will most glorify Him, through people who fear Him and those who do not.
- 3. God’s people are called consistently to submit to the governing authorities over them with very specific imperatives toward civil disobedience only when the authority demands disobedience toward God.
- 4. God defines the Church as a body not an individual; therefore, the Church is called to find ways to experience true Gospel community regardless of the circumstances.
- 5. God calls the Church to love people, and the love Jesus demonstrates is a self-giving and self-sacrificial love. Love risks itself, not others.
Each of these come from the testimony of Scripture and are not born of our bias, agenda, or preferences. This is the grid of how we have been and will continue to make decisions.
